Rainn Wilson in FOX drama, Backstrom

January 7, 2014

Hollywood Reporter states “[FOX]… has picked up Rainn Wilson-starrer Backstrom — the drama developed by CBS during the 2013-14 pilot season — to series… Backstrom is based on the books by Swedish criminologist/novelist Leif G.W. Persson and was first developed in July 2012. The hourlong crime drama centers on an overweight, offensive, irascible detective as he tries and fails to change his self-destructive behavior. Fox has ordered 13 episodes, and production will begin early this year. A formal premier date has not yet been announced.”

Congratulations, Rainn!

Here’s a sizzle reel of Rainn Wilson’s new drama, Backstrom!


  1. This does look good. I am excited and I do not get excited for dramas. I’m reminded of Hugh Laurie in House and Timothy Hutton in Leverage.

  2. Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but according to a quick google search, it says, the Pilot was rejected by CBS and this trailer was leaked.
